I really enjoyed this memoir by Lila Cockrell. She was the first woman to be elected mayor of San Antonio. She also has the distinction of being the first female mayor of a major American city. She is a trailblazer. I remember her serving as mayor when I was a high school student in San Antonio. I enjoyed learning more about Lila Cockrell and my favorite city, San Antonio.
